Ledebour admits two varieties of R, Ayper&oreits, differing in the straight or hoo&ed
ftyle ; and R. pi/ymceus only differs from the latter in the want of stolones. In Sik-
kim both the erect and the stoloniferous states occur, and specimens from that pro-
vince are identical in every respect with those of northern Europe. The heads of
fruit of this species are a good deal like those of 21. radicans, but smaller.

This elegant species agrees so well with the description of K amoenus, I
which is universally considered to be the Siberian form of 22. qgtou, R. Br., t
is difficult to consider it different; especially as there are specimens referred by bota-
nists to that species, not only of Siberian origin, bnt also from arctic America, which
are undistinguishablc from the Indian plant described above. R. Dahuricv-s, Turcz.
mss. (which is quoted by Ledeboor as a synonym of his M. pedatifidus), is certainly
the same as the Tudian plant, if the specimen in the Hookeriau Herbarium may be
relied upon as authentic ; and it differs from the usual Sibeiian states of R. affinis
